The Chicago Bulls have assigned point guard Marquis Teague to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Iowa Energy, according to the team.

Teague has seen limited playing time this season despite the Bulls' lack of depth at the point guard position after losing superstar Derrick Rose for the season to a knee injury. Teague has averaged just under nine minutes per game so far this season.

The move leaves the Bulls with veterans Kirk Hinrich and Mike James as the only point guard options currently on their roster.
